  • U.S. Wants to Make It Easier to Wiretap the Internet.Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.The bill, which the Obama administration plans to submit to lawmakers next year, raises fresh questions about how to balance security needs with protecting privacy and fostering innovation. And because security services around the world face the same problem, it could set an example that is copied globally.James X. Dempsey, vice president of the Center for Democracy and Technology, an Internet policy group, said the proposal had “huge implications” and challenged “fundamental elements of the Internet revolution” — including its decentralized design.“They are really asking for the authority to redesign services that take advantage of the unique, and now pervasive, architecture of the Internet,” he said. “They basically want to turn back the clock and make Internet services function the way that the telephone system used to function.” Providers that failed to comply would face fines or some other penalty.

  • Chef told by Gordon Ramsay that his business was about to 'swim down the Hudson' is found dead after jump into river.It was the prediction that has now come back to haunt Gordon Ramsay.In 2007, while filming an episode of Kitchen Nightmares, the celebrity chef had harsh words for New Jersey restaurateur Joseph Cerniglia: his business was about to 'swim down the Hudson'.This week it was revealed that Cerniglia, a 39-year-old father of three, is believed to have leapt to his death into the Hudson from the George Washington Bridge.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • 10 Hateful Anti-Woman Acts By Leftist “Feminists,” Part 1.The Burqa is Sexy and Other Celebrations of the Islamic Veil.Earlier this year NewsReal Blog debuted the Naomi Wolf Award, also known as The Howler, to recognize "the failure of feminist commentators to identify Muslim veils, particularly the burqa and the niqab, as powerful symbols of extremist ideology and instruments of subjugation." Naomi Wolf, of course, is among the worst offenders when it comes to justifying the entombment of women in these dehumanizing fabric crypts.After a delightful jaunt through a Moroccan bazaar in a headscarf she wore by choice, Wolf wrote, “I felt a novel sense of calm and serenity. I felt, yes, in certain ways, free.” Never mind the medical problems related to burqa-induced vitamin D deficiency. Disregard the fact that in parts of the world, the alternative to donning the veil is death. Naomi Wolf had a gay ol' time obscuring her femininity from the nasty male gaze, so the veil should be celebrated!Other so-called feminists defended the burqa from conservative racists and painted the full veil as a delightful mobile playground for Muslim children.Way to strike a blow against the patriarchy, ladies.

  • HT:AmericanThinker.Countering Islamic Indoctrination in Public Schools.The fight against Islamic indoctrination in the schools won a victory in Texas last week. But the forces pushing to obfuscate the nature of Islam's jihad imperative hold the high ground in the education industry, forcing parents and realists to continue to fight.As parents, we have a moral obligation to our children and our Western heritage to combat the corrosive indoctrination on Islam that currently passes for "Islamic education" in public school curricula. That effort must begin by providing our children ready home access to objective, unapologetic Western scholarship on Islam. The faulty textbooks which cover Islam as a benign force in world history while short-changing the Judeo-Christian tradition do not come cheap. In comparison, the Concise Encyclopedia is quite a bargain for schools that always plead poverty. A Global Mosaic, published by Prentice Hall, costs schools $106.63. The Human Experience by Farah, Mounir A. and Andrea Berens Karls sets back schools $106.94. Parents who want to counter this propaganda that anesthetizes our children to the dangers of Islamic jihad doctrine have to insist that their schools balance the propaganda with objective, un-politicized scholarship.

  • HT:HIDF.Islamic misguided case Example .Do read it to understand the misguided cases of Islam.From the Comment section..of Jihadwatch. Thought worth sharing with the world…Christians are Child Abusing, Demon Possessed, Devil-Worshipping, Cannibalized Vampires.What is the difference between a monkey, a Jew and a pig? There is no difference according to the Qur’an, which reveals Allah transformed some Jews into monkeys and swine and Genetic/DNA testing will confirm this. The Qur’an also reveals Christians will go to the Hell-fire for their worshipping Allah’s Messenger slave, whom they devour in their pagan rituals. I advise all Christians to read the Qur’an and discover what your evil, fire-species, greedy, Muslim-murdering, maniacal, monkey masters have kept concealed from you. Do not read the Koran, as the Koran is a crazy book, written by crazed Jew’s to hide their satanic origins; the Children of Satan aka the Children of Israel. Clinically insane Jews also wrote the Koran in an attempt to portray Muslims to be the murdering lunatics the world knows the Jews to be; yet Christians continue to serve and worship the war criminal, occupying, hostile fire species as Allah’s Chosen People. Christian’s arrogance is only exceeded by their brutal stupidity, as Muslims and Jews know the following Commandments invalidate Christianity; yet Christians continue to disobey Allah and perform uncivilized and depraved acts of cannibalism and vampirism on a dead Jew’s corpse and call it “religion”. Christians are being willfully ignorant, as they all know it was Allah and NOT Jesus who parted the Red Sea to allow the Jews to escape the pursuing Egyptians and the vampires also know that it was Allah and NOT Jesus who spoke to Moses on Mt. Sinai; yet the low-life, racist, cannibalized vampires continue to worship a murdered, Jew Messenger, “SLAVE” as their god.A prime example of "Inter faith dialog" at work?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • The Top 10 Ways Conservatives See Obama – And the 1 That’s Most Accurate.The question has perplexed the Right since Barack Obama first emerged on the scene. How are we to understand Barack Obama?I’ve assembled 10 of these approaches today and am counting them down from least accurate and flat-out wrong to the more useful to the ultimate key to understanding them all. When it comes down to it there is a single label which can give conservatives a grasp of who Obama is and what values he actually holds.But first let’s start with a few Obama formulations made by some of the least educated of conservatives…Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • UNHRC abuses human rights.Once again, a report has blamed an event almost solely on Israel while refusing to assign responsibility or even suitably investigate any other party.While its name would seem to indicate a worthy body, the UNHRC has two sole functions: to defend serial human-rights abusing nations from reproach, and to revile and attack Israel.General Assembly President Joseph Deisss warned recently against the marginalization of the UN itself by stating the need for urgent reforms, like reviewing the UNHRC. At stake is the plight of millions of victims of human-rights violations around the world.It is high time for democracies to reassess their participation in a council that places political calculations over the protection of human rights while providing cover to some of the world’s most brutal regimes.We must give a voice to the oppressed, justice to the abused and equity for all of humanity. None of this will be achieved by always attacking and condemning Israel while allowing totalitarian nations to hijack the international human-rights agenda.It seems the UN has outlived his usefullness?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • President Obama: Fire failing teachers.President Barack Obama took aim at the nation’s failing schools Monday, saying bad teachers should be fired if they’re not cutting it and that students should stay in school longer each year.Obama also leveled a critique of the Washington, D.C., public schools, saying his daughters wouldn’t get as good an education there as at their private school. "I'll be blunt with you,” Obama answered. “The answer is 'no' right now.”But Obama laid part of the blame squarely on teachers and said bad teachers should be fired if they can’t train kids to succeed.“You’ve got to have radical change, and radical change is something that’s in the interest of students.” he said. “We’ve got to be able to identify teachers who are doing well. ... And, ultimately, if some teachers aren’t doing a good job, they’ve got to go.”Obama did praise unions in the interview, pointing out that many are cooperating with states on education reforms."I'm a strong supporter of the notion a union can protect its members and be a part of the solution instead of the problem," he said.Fire teachers who don't view it my way?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.
  • Truth about Obamanomics — from Canada.While President Obama gets a Hallelujah Choir from columnists Robert Samuelson and Paul Krugman, a Canadian is will ing to tell the truth: You don’t borrow money in a debt crisis.“Obama did exactly the opposite of what should have been done,” Taleb said yesterday in Montreal in a speech as part of Canada’s Salon Speakers series. “He surrounded himself with people who exacerbated the problem. You have a person who has cancer and instead of removing the cancer, you give him tranquilizers. When you give tranquilizers to a cancer patient, they feel better but the cancer gets worse.”Today, Taleb said, “total debt is higher than it was in 2008 and unemployment is worse.”Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:JIDF.Racist Messages Pose Quandary for Mainstream Sites.Interesting article in the AP today - a shame they neglected to tell the story of the Jew hatred online which is increasing at alarming rates, but still, interesting nonetheless: Although you rarely hear racial insults on Main Street these days, there's a place where unashamed bigotry is all too easy to find: tossed off in the comments sections of some of the Internet's most popular websites, today's virtual Main Street.However it is wrong when it claims: "Internet anonymity has removed one of the strongest barriers to the type of language that can ruin reputations and end careers. Racist messages are a small percentage of the wild and woolly web, but they stick out since they are rare in person — and they raise a host of questions."Internet anonymity has very little to do with the problem. Most of the people we have encountered have no issues spewing out their hate in their own names. They are emboldened by their friends, who do the same.Or is AP advocating Obama's plans to Wiretap the Internet?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • America Paying To Burn Books (Operation Dark Heart).America? How do you feel about paying $47,000 of hard earned cash to burn 9500 copies of a book?Do we, as Americans, burn books NOW? WTF?Lt. Col. Anthony (Tony) Shaffer’s book, ‘Operation Dark Heart‘ was approved by the Army and set for release on August 31, 2010, when the Defense Intelligence Agency stepped in and notified the Army that the book’s approval needed to be rescinded because it impacts national security. The controversy surrounds Shaffer’s testimony about Mohammad Atta given to the 9.11 Commission, and Operation ‘Able-Danger’.I have thought from the moment I saw the first plane hit the towers that there is much more to this than just ‘covering’ the intelligence community’s asses over what appears to be a mistake of this magnitude. This could also be more of ‘watch the left hand while we slap you with the right’ maneuvering (Colbert vs. Coates on Capitol Hill last week). There is just too much evidence to support a completely different story than was told by the 9.11 Commission.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BigPeace.FBI Escorts Known Hamas Operative Through Top-Secret National Counterterrorism Center as “Outreach” to Muslim Community.A known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history – Kifah Mustapha – was recently escorted into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center and other secure government facilities, including the FBI’s training center at Quantico, during a six-week “Citizen’s Academy” hosted by the FBI as part of its “outreach” to the Muslim Community.Sheik Kifah Mustapha, who runs the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, asked some of the most pointed questions during the six week FBI Citizens’ Academy and trip to Washington. He pushed agents to fully explain everything from the bureau’s use of deadly force policy to racial and ethnic profiling. “I saw a very interesting side of what the FBI does and I wanted to know more,” Sheik Mustapha explained after returning from D.C. He hopes the FBI’s outreach runs deeper than positive public relations.Yes, I bet he wanted to know everything about the FBI’s policies.Read the full treason scandal story here.Click here for comments.

  • Invasion of stink bugs has homeowners, farmers seeking relief.Shaped like shields and armed with an odor, dime-size brown bugs are crawling into area homes over windowsills, through door crevices and between attic vents in such numbers that homeowners talk about drowning them in jars of soapy water, suffocating them in plastic bags or even burning them with propane torches. In the process, some people are unwittingly creating another problem: When squashed or irritated, the bugs release the distinctive smell of sweaty feet.Hmmmm...Pharaoh...let my people go?Another "plague coming?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Iran Crosses Iraq Border to Strike Bomb Suspects.General Says Iranian Forces Killed 30 Fighters Alleged to Be Responsibile for Bombing of Military Parade.The report quotes a general of the elite Revolutionary Guards as saying the "terrorists" were killed yesterday in a clash "beyond the border," and that his forces were still in pursuit of two men who escaped the ambush.While Iran has said in the past it would target armed groups on Iraqi soil, this is a rare case of it actually admitting to an attack.Iraqi officials have complained in the past about Iranian artillery targeting armed Kurdish opposition groups on its soil.Iran has already blamed the attack on Kurdish separatists who have fought Iranian forces in the area for years. But most Kurdish groups condemned the attack, and no one has so far claimed responsibility for it.Gen. Mohammad Pakpour, head of the Guards' ground forces, said Sunday the armed group was backed by Israel, the U.S. and members of the Iraqi Baath Party, former supporters of deposed leader Saddam Hussein.Government forces in Iraq, Iran and Turkey have all periodically battled with the Kurdish minorities straddling their borders. They fear the groups are seeking to unite territory in all three nations to form an independent Kurdish homeland.Hmmmm.....Iran and Turkey really have no problem killing Kurds?Pardon......nope, i tought i heard Obama saying something about the killings.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:TheEndoftheAmericanDream.Banks Are Failing At A Record Pace, The FDIC Bank Problem List Continues To Grow And Most Americans Don't Even Realize The U.S. Banking System Is Dying.In the mainstream media, all the talk is about how the "recession" is over. But the truth is that our economic problems are far from over. In fact, the U.S. banking system is dying. U.S. banks continue to fail at a record pace. The FDIC list of problem banks continues to grow at an alarming pace. Loans and mortgages continue to go bad at an accelerating rate at banks across the United States. The truth is that we are in deep, deep trouble, and the vast majority of the American people do not even realize it. But the American people better wake up soon, because if the U.S. banking system dies, the American Dream is going to die along with it for tens of millions of Americans.So far in 2010, 127 U.S. banks have been shut down by federal regulators. That puts us on pace to far surpass the total of 140 U.S. banks that failed last year. And last year was the most bank failures that the U.S. had seen since back in 1992.So when will the number of bank failures start going down?Will it ever start going down?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Imam: NY Muslim center aims to prevent terror attack.The imam behind the controversial plan to build a Muslim culture center near the site of New York's September 11 attack said on Sunday the project is meant to prevent a similar attack.In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" program, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said he feels duty bound to help protect non-Muslim Americans from such violence.Rauf said building the center, which will include a prayer room, two blocks from the destroyed World Trade Center is "the right thing to do.""... America needs it and the Muslim world needs it," he said."We have to wage peace."Critics say the center's proximity to Ground Zero is insensitive, while supporters say politicians have wrongly commandeered the emotionally charged debate before U.S. congressional elections on November 2.Another veiled treath by the Iman?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BacktoBasics.Is Sharia Law Creeping Into American Lives?The Muslims downplay the above question by scoffingly answering in the negative despite mounting evidence to the contrary. Of course getting devious answers from Muslims is to be expected; that is, until they are ready to threaten a lawsuit due to being offended.The February 19, 2010 online Bear Creek Ledger (TN) writer Toni stated “You can see the tell tale signs of creeping Sharia Law (Islamic law) through lawsuits and demands made by Muslims in America on an almost daily basis. Whether it’s the Somali Muslim cabdrivers (Mpls.,MN) who refuse to pick up fares who have been consuming alcohol to disabled people with a service canine or it could be something like Muslims demanding foot baths in a public building, it’s the incremental creep of imposing Sharia Law in the US.”In the same issue of the Bear Creek Ledger this report was published: “Last year Stephen Coughlin (a Pentagon specialist on Islamic law and extremism) was fired because of Muslim officials in the Pentagon who opposed his work. You think there is no threat in the US from Islamists in this country?’Also, this offering from Brian Mosely of the Shelbyville (TN) Times: “Every major Muslim organization is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a former FBI Agent John Guandolo said, which he said was formed to overthrow America and establish Islamic law.“They’re having great success of implementing Shariah law, I could give you a thousand examples,’’ Guandolo said.He said small concessions like installing foot baths, and colleges forced to have separate swimming times for Islamic men and women so not to offend Muslims, are other parts of the strategy.“The solution to this is you,” Guandolo said. “If you are looking to DHS, the FBI and Congress to solve this . you’re going to be woefully disappointed.”So even a former FBI Agent agrees with the premise that Sharia is working its way into and through our judicial system at all levels; and their arrogant and selfish demands for attention are being heard and dealt with by people in authoritative positions.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • The "slaughterhouse" of Dagestan is not Chechnya.Suicide attacks on police and institutions are now a daily reality in the Caucasus republic. But it is not over independent: social frustration and Islamic fundamentalism, the factors that threaten to detonate a ticking time bomb. Russia faces important challenge of modernizing the region.The factor which, however, is playing an increasing role in the Caucasus and republic is Islam. Those who promote the "rebirth of Islam" (present on the ground in the Salafist movement, ed), belong to different ethnic groups united by faith in Salafist Islam. This finds converts among the people, promoting social justice and fighting corruption. It offers a new alternative to a society disillusioned by its Soviet experience and the democratic post-Soviet era.Unlike Chechnya, the activities of rebellion and dissent against Moscow are found in diverse environments: ethnic, religious, business and the same local government. In any given attack the motive may be the "privatization" of state property, while in another Islamic extremism. Among the ranks of Islamic fighters are not just religious fanatics, but also citizens who are victims of corruption or the tyranny of the authorities.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Kashmir's 'martyrs' graveyard' busy again.The "martyrs' graveyard" in Indian-administered Kashmir's capital, Srinagar, is again burying victims of conflict."There are over 1,000 martyrs here," grave-digger Abdul Hameed says, matter-of-factly. "This year," he says, "it's looking bad again." We are taking a walk down a narrow cobblestone pathway running through rows of graves in the cemetery. Buried here are - mostly - men, women and children who have died in the bloody insurrection against India. The cemetery sits on the western edge of Srinagar, flanked by the Himalayas and vast fields on one side and a busy neighbourhood of dull brick and timber homes on the other.Mr Hameed is a middle-aged, sunburnt man who looks after this oasis of the dead. This year has seen one of Kashmir's bloodiest summers in over a decade - more than 100 civilians have lost their lives in an almost equal number of days in clashes with security forces.About 70,000 people have been killed in Kashmir since 1990.There are some telling epitaphs that point to the sentiments of freedom and feeling of subjugation in the valley: "When Slaves Are Martyred They Are Relieved of Their Pain," reads the tombstone of 22-year-old Ashiq Hussain, who was killed on 20 August 1996.Hmmmm......i wonder wich religion they practice since it's not mentioned in the article?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BacktoBasics.BORN IN THE USA?Doc missing statement candidate ‘qualified’ under U.S. Constitution.It long has been documented that when Barack Obama was picked by the Democratic Party to be its 2008 presidential candidate, only one state – Hawaii – was sent a document from Nancy Pelosi certifying that he was qualified under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.Now a series of blogs reports are heating up the issue again, this time revealing documents that showed it apparently was Hawaii’s local Democratic Party that refused to include that certification on its paperwork naming Obama as its candidate.Even today, the Hawaii Democratic Party was staying mum, declining attempts by WND to obtain a comment on why it handled the 2008 presidential race paperwork as it did.The original report came from a commentator at Canada Free Press who revealed the Democrats failed to certify their candidate’s eligibility in 49 of the 50 states.See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential eligibility mystery.Read and see the full story here.Click here for comments.

This bullshit is out of freakin’ hand and I don’t want to hear one damn word about how great the liberty-usurping Patriot Act is or how it has protected us after 9.11. It’s been nothing but a ‘do-whatever-they-damn-well-please’ act for the federal government.Let’s just keep nudging the internet into a corner and very soon it isn’t going to matter anymore.

  • HT:BacktoBasics.ObamaCare Insurance Exemptions!"“The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient."ObamaCare discriminates against Christians and Jews by denying them special exemptions extended to other religions.If you are a mainstream Christian or a Jew, you need not apply to Opt Out of ObamaCare; that exemption is reserved for Muslims, Scientologists, Amish, Christian Scientists and Native American Indians who have a “conscientious objection” to insurance. A conscientious objection to theft committed by rouge politicians under the color of law with the threat of violence for non-compliance isn’t sufficient in America today to exempt average Americans from the stranglehold of government. Believe it or not, if you are a Muslim you may claim a special religious exemption to Obama-Care that is denied to main-stream Christians and Jews. Or if you prefer a New-Age religion to Islam, you may become a Scientologist and Opt Out of ObamaCare’s mandatory purchase of health insurance. Or, if you happen to be of Native American Indian extraction you too can opt out of the insurance laws by which everyone else in America must abide.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Mr. President, I feel hope-less.Three years ago, Bryant Park Hotel doorman Greg Smith, 46, once a diehard supporter of the Clintons, put his life on hold to cam paign for Barack Obama. Shortly after The Post fea tured Smith's conversion on the front page in April 2007, Obama called the doorman and asked him to introduce him on the cam paign trail. Now, 18 months after Obama's inaugura tion, Smith says he's losing hope for the change he once believed in.Two years later, I'm living a more sober reality.My life is not better. I'm a college graduate and I still can't get a good job.I'm back working as a doorman at a Manhattan hotel earning peanuts because my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and I need the health insurance again.I share the same sentiments of Velma Hart, the woman who confronted Obama at a town hall last week, saying she was tired of defending him.

  • Report: Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated .The U.S. government. The Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. government as part of the movement's drive to promote holy war against the West, a report said. So far, the government was said to have done nothing to stop the Brotherhood infiltration. The report by the Center for Security Policy cited the success of one Brotherhood operative in gaining access to the White House under both Democratic and Republican administrations."Relying on Brotherhood operatives for 'outreach to the Muslim community,' let alone appointing them to influential government jobs, is a formula for disaster," the report said. "It gives prominence and legitimacy to enemy agents engaged in covert and not-so-covert acts of sedition. It facilitates their penetration and influence over the intelligence, law enforcement and national and homeland security agencies responsible for discerning and defeating such threats.""Indeed, it is hard to overstate the danger associated with the president of the United States having as his top advisor in these sensitive portfolios someone so severely compromised with respect to shariah and the threat it poses,"The report said." I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States"?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • 7000 ICE officers give thumbs down to Obama ICE director.As the Obama Administration plans to implement a 'back-door' amnesty plan for illegal aliens, 7000 of the officers who are responsible for the enforcement of immigration law have given a vote of 'no confidence' to Obama's ICE director John Morton, and assistant director Phyllis Coven.The group also revolted against the concept of 'sanctuary cities.'Due to the fact that they have seen first-hand the widespread corruption in the organization and the absolute refusal of Obama appointees to obey the nation's immigration laws, the 7000 field officers of ICE recently passed a unanimous resolution expressing no confidence in the director and assistant director.Unless sweeping changes are made to Congress in November...meaning, a complete ouster of Obama-supporting Democrats and the election of those who abide by the Constitution, then the nation may be lost forever. These illegal activities cannot be allowed to stand or else the country as we know it will be relegated to the dust-bin of history.Patriots have no intention of allowing it to stand, even if the Constitutionalists lose in November.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Potentially Devastating Long-Term Effects of Boston Mosque Visit (Part 2).From a political/psychological perspective, this story begs the question–What if this had been a Christian Church who had asked gays, or lesbians, or women to leave while the men were invited to stay and pray? What would the outrage be then? The schools, the teachers, the church, and probably even the parental escorts would have all been sued by the ACLU before the school bus reached the campus. Why is it that we are shocked when western religions engage in politics, but less so with eastern religions, namely Islam, but even Hinduism. This is due in part to the western tradition of keeping religion and “state” separate, separate rules, separate authorities, etc. There also is a cultural hardening and truly a “death of outrage” when subscribers to Islam push political boundaries. Why?The confusion, fear, discrimination, separation, indoctrination, and hate experienced by the children present on that “field trip” that day could, for some children last for years, without counseling. Is the school providing counseling? Would they, if a “religious zealot” had gone rogue in a classroom, spewing things like “Jesus died for you,” or “You could go to Hell if you don’t give your heart to Jesus?” But treating little girls as unequal people, undermining the faith of children, and pressuring little boys to pray to a god they don’t believe in is all okay, when done in the name of Allah?Psychologically, why did the mosque choose a white, average American looking woman to proselytize these unsuspecting children? Would I be labeled a bigot, a zealot, a racist, or a radical if I were to tell you why I think they used that white woman?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Netanyahu challenges the U.N.Thanks and a tip of the hat to Atlas Shrugs for posting four videos and a transcript of P.M. Netanyahu's address to the General Assembly. I find it to be considerably shorter and more honest than President Obama's address. The United Nations was founded after the carnage of World War II and the horrors of the Holocaust. It was charged with preventing the recurrence of such horrendous events. Nothing has undermined that central mission more than the systematic assault on the truth. Yesterday the President of Iran stood at this very podium, spewing his latest anti-Semitic rants. Just a few days earlier, he again claimed that the Holocaust is a lie. Netanyahu proceeds to present evidence of the Holocaust, and Atlas provides links to it. But outside of one or two biblical references, no evidence of the Jew's long term connection to the land. But the assault on truth goes far beyond the murder of six million, it includes denial of Jewish history and connection to the Levant. I wish he had developed the full story rather than just one half of it. Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come here and to those who left this room in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity and you brought honor to your countries. But to those who gave this Holocaust-denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency? A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies that the murder of six million Jews took place and pledges to wipe out the Jewish state. What a disgrace! What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations! Perhaps some of you think that this man and his odious regime threaten only the Jews. You're wrong. History has shown us time and again that what starts with attacks on the Jews eventually ends up engulfing many others.Ladies and Gentlemen, The jury is still out on the United Nations, and recent signs are not encouraging. Rather than condemning the terrorists and their Iranian patrons, some here have condemned their victims. That is exactly what a recent UN report on Gaza did, falsely equating the terrorists with those they targeted. For eight long years, Hamas fired from Gaza thousands of missiles, mortars and rockets on nearby Israeli cities. Year after year, as these missiles were deliberately hurled at our civilians, not a single UN resolution was passed condemning those criminal attacks. We heard nothing – absolutely nothing – from the UN Human Rights Council, a misnamed institution if there ever was one.Never has a country gone to such extraordinary lengths to remove the enemy's civilian population from harm's way. Yet faced with such a clear case of aggressor and victim, who did the UN Human Rights Council decide to condemn? Israel. A democracy legitimately defending itself against terror is morally hanged, drawn and quartered, and given an unfair trial to boot. By these twisted standards, the UN Human Rights Council would have dragged Roosevelt and Churchill to the dock as war criminals. What a perversion of truth! What a perversion of justice!I believe such a peace can be achieved. But only if we roll back the forces of terror, led by Iran, that seek to destroy peace, eliminate Israel and overthrow the world order.The question facing the international community is whether it is prepared to confront those forces or accommodate them.Nonsense! That question has already been answered. The international community has chosen appeasement, throwing Israel to the wolves. Joshua & Churchill are long since dead. The world has not learned and will not learn. History will repeat itself because nobody learns and implements its lessons."Alea iacta est - The die has been cast".

  • Vote Fraud in Democratic Primary using Somali Muslim Immgrants.Will Somali Muslim Pirates Hijack the Election?But even before the final recount, Royster had learned from Republican election judges and others that the election had been hijacked.Royster started gathering affidavits from the judges, and their testimony suggests to what lengths Democrats are prepared to go to salvage the November election.In one polling place, a Somali woman who had earlier been handing out Rizzo literature accompanied four of her fellow Somalis to the registration desk. According to the Republican judge, she signed in for all of them and accepted ballots for them.“I saw her place the ballots on the table and fill them in herself,” testified the judge under oath. “The same woman came in with several groups of people throughout the day.”Later, a Somali man came in with a half dozen or so of his compatriots and then came back later with seven or eight more. He told some of them to “vote for Rizzo,” and for others he just filled out the ballots for himself.When the Republican judge confronted the Somali man presumably acting as interpreter, he told her that the voting Somalis were “blind and could not speak.”According to the law, one interpreter can help only one family member and the voter has to take an oath to the effect that he is either blind or cannot read and write. None of this happened.Other polling places were just as corrupted. A second Republican judge testified that at her site a Somali man brought in a Rizzo sign, pointed to it, and instructed the four Somali women with him “how to cast their vote and whom to vote for.”At the most recent court hearing, five election judges testified on Royster’s behalf. No one challenged their testimony, but Judge Stephen Nixon refused to rule in Royster’s favor. Although conceding the various violations, the judge attributed the failure to the seemingly benign error of the election judges.Royster understands something about the value of citizenship. He flew 43 missions over Iraq in Desert Storm and left the Navy only after being injured when ejecting from a crippled plane.“With all due respect to Judge Nixon,” said Royster, “I respectfully disagree with his decision to decriminalize election fraud and voter fraud in the state of Missouri.”Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Stuxnet In Pictures: The Cyber-Weapon Said to Target Iran's Nuclear Infrastructure.Virtually every version of Windows was vulnerable. But, interestingly, the malware had first been spotted infesting Siemens WinCC SCADA systems. Siemens makes one of the world's most popular lines of PLCs and was, as of a few years ago, reported to have a third of the world's market share.When Stuxnet infects a Windows machine, it reports back to a C&C (command and control) server the following information within an encrypted HTTP request.Given the countries targeted -- Iran appears to be a primary 'beneficiary' of Stuxnet -- researchers speculate that the malware was designed to destroy the Islamic Republic's burgeoning nuclear infrastructure.If that is the case, I have only one word for Stuxnet: Godspeed.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Turkey: gallery attack ignites debate The gang of several dozen men with sticks and pepper spray moved methodically from one art gallery to the next, assaulting overflow crowds that had spilled into the streets during the joint opening of several exhibitions in the center of İstanbul."You don't want us, so we don't want you,""It was like a battlefield. They were hitting people constantly," said Dikbaş, who said the attitude of the attackers resembled -- on a small scale -- that of the mobs that targeted the homes and shops of the Greek minority during deadly riots in İstanbul in 1955.One theory among artists is that political extremists engineered the attack in order to create division, thereby radicalizing Turks. Conspiracy theories prosper in Turkey, where democracy is maturing and many crimes have been attributed to the so-called "deep state," an alleged network of hardline nationalists with links to state institutions.Hmmm...wonder what religion would be linked to this?It remains a crime to insult the memory of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the national founder and a hero to many Turks, but the law is enforced less strictly these days. A polyester statue in the window of Galeri Non depicts Atatürk as a fallen angel, his head and one wing resting on the floor, the body tilting upward at a diagonal. The title of the gallery's exhibition is: "I didn't do this, you did."Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • North Korean elite secretly jostle for the reins of power.Kim Jong-il has chosen his son to succeed him, but other figures may set the state's course.The poster for the first conference of the (North) Korean Workers' party to be held since 1966 depicts four striving, heroic figures. A rifle-bearing soldier leads the way, but only by the tiniest of margins, followed by an engineer in a hard hat. Behind them stride a technocrat clutching a rolled-up blueprint and a female farmer with a sheaf of wheat."Succession is always the Achilles' heel of regimes like this," said Aidan Foster-Carter, a North Korea expert at Leeds University, who has noted the flurry of changes at the top of the regime in the past year. "I'm sure this is a significant moment." He is one of a number of analysts who believe that Chang Sung-taek is being lined up to play a pivotal role in the succession, either as "regent", as facilitator of the succession period, or even as a leader should Kim Jong-un prove unpalatable in the long run.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Citizens' Group Helps Uncover Alleged Rampant Voter Fraud in Houston.When Catherine Engelbrecht and her friends sat down and started talking politics several years ago, they soon agreed that talking wasn’t enough. They wanted to do more. So when the 2008 election came around, “about 50” of her friends volunteered to work at Houston’s polling places.“What we saw shocked us,” she said. “There was no one checking IDs, judges would vote for people that asked for help. It was fraud, and we watched like deer in the headlights.”Their shared experience, she says, created “True the Vote,” a citizen-based grassroots organization that began collecting publicly available voting data to prove that what they saw in their day at the polls was, indeed, happening -- and that it was happening everywhere.“It was a true Tea Party moment,” she remembers.Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Steve Caddle, who also works for the Service Employees International Union. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.The integrity of the voting rolls in Harris County, Texas, appears to be under an organized and systematic attack by the group operating under the name Houston Votes,” the Harris voter registrar, Leo Vasquez, charged as he passed on the documentation to the district attorney. A spokesman for the DA's office declined to discuss the case. And a spokesman for Vasquez said that the DA has asked them to refrain from commenting on the case.The outcome of the efforts grew in importance the day after Vasquez made his announcement. On the morning of Aug. 27, a three-alarm fire destroyed almost all of Harris County’s voting machines, throwing the upcoming Nov. 2 election into turmoil. While the cause wasn’t determined, the $40 million blaze, according to press reports, means election officials will be focused on creating a whole new voting system in six weeks. Just how they do it will determine how vulnerable the process becomes.Hmmm....who profited from the fraud?And what will they come up with now?Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Ahmadenejad shared a hush-hush meal with Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party Tuesday.It was a strange week for the loony strongman from Iran.President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's six nights in New York featured a secret sit-down with militant minister Louis Farrakhan, heckling in a hotel bar, and a fear of being rubbed out that bordered on paranoia.The president shared a hush-hush meal with Farrakhan and members of the New Black Panther Party Tuesday at the Warwick Hotel on West 54th Street.The meeting of the podium smackers took place in a banquet room, where the fiery leaders presumably exchanged theories on what's wrong with the world.On Thursday night, Sudanese diplomats trying to get in to see Ahmadinejad at the Hilton Manhattan East, on 42nd Street, squared off with security and a pushing match ensued. Two well-dressed women in their 40s came in, sat at the hotel bar and ordered drinks.One of them caught the attention of the president's security detail, which had set up a station in the hotel lobby. She was soon surrounded by eight angry Iranians, who ordered her to leave. She refused.A manager tried to calm things down. Suddenly, the woman stood up and pointed at the Iranians, yelling, "You stoned my sister! You're murderers!" Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

Passengers say will not resist if ordered to stop.A boat carrying human rights activists from Israel, Germany, the United States and Britain has reportedly set sail for Gaza Sunday, hoping to breach Israel's blockade there and deliver aid.Richard Kuper, an organizer with the UK group "Jews for Justice for Palestinians," said one goal is to "show that not all Jews support Israeli policies toward Palestinians."Yonatan Shapira, a peace activist aboard the Irene, added that "We have a strategy of non-violence and non-confrontation, if the Israeli army stopped the boat, we will divert it to the port (of Ashdod)."We have a clear mission, to break the blockade. The Greek police just haled us to change our flag, no that we are it Greece's territorial water.

  • The 'Zionist regime' enters the UN's Iranian underworld."'The Jerusalem Post?'" he said incredulously. "You have to leave. And you know why!" “Is the Ahmadinejad press conference really cancelled?” I asked the woman behind the Media Accreditation and Liaison Unit desk at the United Nations.It was Thursday afternoon, and Ahmadinejad had just spoken to the General Assembly. A magazine journalist, Dave, and I had heard a rumor that the press conference was cancelled, but wanted to make sure.“Yes, but it may just be postponed...we don’t know,” the MALU woman said. “But we can escort you to the press conference area downstairs.”The camera-toting journalist from the elevator came over to us. It was clear from his demeanor that he wasn’t going to bring up becoming Facebook friends.“Where are you from?” he asked, eyebrows furrowed.“I’m from New Jersey,” I responded. Which, technically, is true.“You know that that’s not what I mean,” he said, starting to reach for my press pass around my neck.How to respond? “The Zionist Entity,” I wondered? Or perhaps “The Zionist Regime”? I stepped away from his hand. “The Jerusalem Post.”“THE JERUSALEM POST?” he responded, incredulously. “Well, YOU have to leave.” He leaned forward, somewhat menacingly. “And you KNOW why.”“Do I?” I asked.“You have to go,” he said, wearing what Dave would later call ‘thug face.’ “You have to go right now.”“We have every right to stay,” Dave said. “This is the United Nations. This is America.”But this isn’t really America, I thought as the thuggy guy, hands on his hips, breathed heavily in my face. This is not America. This is the basement of a multinational complex, where a staggeringly high level of deference is being paid to the whims and fancies of a man being protested by hundreds outside. This is a place where the regular rules don’t matter, and where regulations and standards are easily trumped by fear and cowardice. This is an underworld. The woman came over. “I’m sorry,” she said to me. “They know who you are, and you have to leave.”That’s the problem, I thought as I was escorted out. We all know who we are. We just don’t agree on who has to leave.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • HT:BacktoBasics.The Gulf is Still Leaking – Did BP Switch the Well Seen on TV?The announcement that the Deepwater Horizon Well Head has been capped is being blared all across ABCNNBBCBS with headlines “oil no longer gushing into gulf.” Among the more naive, it may be understood if they have the impression the problem is over (except for the cleanup) because that is the message being sold to the public.But is it reality, or is it politics? There is no question that the Gulf Oil disaster is not going to help Democrats retain their hold on Congress come November. Senator David Vitter points out, correctly, that President Obama has a vested political interest in convincing the public that the problem is over, so that it will fade from public memory in the few months from now until the November elections.The announcement of the attempt to cap the well this last week was greeted with stunned amazement among experts (those not on BP’s payroll). After all, BP had admitted back in May that the drill pipe and well casing had at least one leak 1000 feet below the blowout preventer; the reason the Top Kill procedure had failed.Evidence is starting to surface that BP has pulled a fast one and has changed the well being shown on TV.According to documents filed by British Petroleum with the US Minerals Management Service, there are two wells in the area of the spill. The first well, Well “A”, was drilled early this year, ran into troubles, and was abandoned.Well B is still out there if what I fear is correct, still destroyed and so badly that it cannot be capped at the wellhead. And even if it could be, BP itself reported that they had found leaks in the well casing, meaning that even a successful cap on the wellhead would not stop the oil from leaking out of the shattered well casing and from the vents that have formed in the ocean floor. But we are told it does not exist, so I guess it doesn’t. Even though these pictures prove the thing is out there.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Ht :IsraelMatzav.What's behind the 'Islamophobia' meme.For any of you who have not figured it out yet, of course, 'Islamophobia' has nothing to do with violence against Muslims. This is John Hinderaker from Power Line.There are any number of serious human rights issues in the world today, some of them involving mass murder on an industrial scale, none of which the U.N. has managed to do much about. But the existence of actual human rights crises never distracts the U.N. from pandering to the fantasies of the OIC.If you try to bring a Bible into Saudi Arabia, they will destroy it. That's different, of course.The current resolution does not exist in a vacuum; it is part of a long-term strategy to de-legitimize resistance to Islam, now widely known as "Islamophobia.".Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

The silence on Islamic jihad in the media, on the college campuses, in the government etc is sharia. I will ask this for the zillionith time. Why is CAIR, named co-conspirator, Hamas linked, Muslim Brotherhood front, given senior status on media outlets everywhere? Their leadership has been convicted of funding Hamas and have been vocal in their support of the genocidal, Islamic jihadist group. This was entered into evidence in the largest terror funding trial in American history, the Holy Land trial.But they get the mainstream media megaphone to spew their Islamic supremacist hate and defamation. CAIR hates me becuase I speak the truth about jihad and Islamic supremacism. CAIR hates me because I help Muslims whose lives are in danger. CAIR hates me because I have aided and assisted in an underground railroad for those leaving Islam.I have worked to mark the graves of honor killing victims left to rot in unmarked graves. We have planted a grove of trees in Jerusalem for honor killing victims across the world. What have the Islamic imperialists and supremacists done to the victims of jihad? Name one thing.CAIR hates me.Islamic supremacists hate me because I am free. They hate freedom.The media has been irresponsible in their aiding and abetting of the stealth jihad. Where are the voices of Wafa Sultan, Ibn Warraq, Bat Ye'or, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, etc? Why are they not given equal time?"The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point.

  • Top supermarkets secretly sell halal: Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, and M&S don't tell us meat is ritually slaughtered.Britain's biggest supermarket chains are selling halal lamb and chicken without telling unsuspecting shoppers.Those stocking meat slaughtered according to Islamic law include Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Somerfield and the Co-op.And a Mail on Sunday investigation has found that fast-food chains including Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, KFC, ­Nando’s and Subway are also using halal meat without ­telling customers.But the UK’s second-biggest supermarket, Asda, has refused to confirm or deny whether it sells halal meat.The Mail on Sunday contacted Asda on Tuesday, but by yesterday it had failed to answer any of our questions.Non-Muslim religious leaders say that Christians, Hindus or Sikhs may find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual. Jews are unlikely to be exposed to such meat because they eat kosher, or animals slaughtered according to Jewish law.Last week The Mail on Sunday revealed how halal food was being served to unsuspecting people in hospitals, schools and pubs across the UK.We do not expect commercial interests to prevail, on a technicality, over something that many campaigned for – the humane slaughter of our animals.This is not only commercially wrong, morally it is a disgrace.Read the full story here.Click here for comments.

  • Armament in Mideast: Turkey’s immediate concern is regional instability.Renewed arms sales recently in the Middle East have triggered fears that a conflict with Turkey’s neighbor Iran may be imminent. Today's interactive toolbox Video Photo Audio Send to print Send to my friend Post your comments Read comments A former Turkish ambassador, however, is confident that a war in the region to prevent Iran from furthering its alleged nuclear arms program is not likely -- at least in the near future. US President Barack Obama is a clever man and would not risk triggering a war with Iran just before the Nov. 2 midterm congressional elections, said the retired ambassador.The Gulf countries have embarked on one of the largest re-armament exercises in peacetime history, ordering US weapons worth some $123 billion as they seek to counter Iran's military might, with US arms worth more than $67 billion going to Saudi Arabia, accounting for the largest single component of this military buildup and providing a huge boost to the American defense industry, reported the Financial Times on Sept. 21.The United Arab Emirates (UAE) signed contracts to buy military equipment worth $35 billion to $40 billion from the US. The UAE has received clearance to buy Thaad, a high altitude missile defense system being developed by Lockheed Martin.The UAE and Kuwait have each signed contracts for upgrades to their Patriot missile defense systems, developed by Raytheon, which cover lower levels of an air defense curtain. Oman is expected to spend $12 billion and Kuwait $7 billion through the end of 2014 on replacing and upgrading warplanes and new command and control systems.All these arms buys will enormously benefit US defense giants such as Boeing, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.The prospective sale of $60 billion in advanced weapons systems and aircraft to Saudi Arabia is of both strategic and economic value to the US, aiming to counter the rising threat of a bellicose and potentially nuclear-armed Iran and purporting to create badly needed jobs, the UK based Jane's Defence Weekly (JDW) reported in its Sept. 17 issue.Read the full story here.Click here for comments

This comes out to 24,000 very orthodox Moroccan Muslims and 12,000 very orthodox Turkish Muslims.These people do not shake hands with people of the opposite sex, don't listen to non-religious music and prefer not to go to places where both men and women are present.

  • Obama argues his assassination program is a "state secret".At this point, I didn't believe it was possible, but the Obama administration has just reached an all-new low in its abysmal civil liberties record. In response to the lawsuit filed by Anwar Awlaki's father asking a court to enjoin the President from assassinating his son, a U.S. citizen, without any due process, the administration last late night, according to The Washington Post, filed a brief asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit without hearing the merits of the claims.But what's most notable here is that one of the arguments the Obama DOJ raises to demand dismissal of this lawsuit is "state secrets": in other words, not only does the President have the right to sentence Americans to death with no due process or charges of any kind, but his decisions as to who will be killed and why he wants them dead are "state secrets," and thus no court may adjudicate its legality.David Rivkin, a lawyer in the White House of President George H. W. Bush, echoed that concern."I'm a huge fan of executive power, but if someone came up to you and said the government wants to target you and you can't even talk about it in court to try to stop it, that’s too harsh even for me," he said.I guess Putin must be drooling?

  • Turkey’s non-Muslims also demand respect for sacred sites.Non-Muslim minorities in Turkey have expressed an expectation that their buildings of religious and historic significance deserve respect amid a debate over whether a fashion show should be held at Mardin’s Kasımiye Medrese.Some locals and civil society organizations were offended by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s plan to hold the “An Eastern Tale: Four Seasons” fashion show by famous designer Cemil İpekçi at the historic building of a medrese, an educational institution estimated to have been built in the late 15th or early 16th century. Last week the Mardin Governor’s Office stated that the building was being rented from the Diyarbakır Foundations’ Regional Directorate for cultural purposes. The statement also said the masjid (a room for worship) inside the building was not functional up until April 2009, when it was put back into use by the Mardin Governor’s Office, and a religious official led the noon and afternoon prayers there each day. “Displaying the creations of humans should not be a sin. Humanity’s efforts to produce and create can be also considered acts of worship,” he said. “But if in a fashion show the bodies of top models are displayed more than the designs, this could be disturbing. Likewise, having a belly dancer at Aya Irini would not be appropriate.”Vasiliadis added that Anatolia was full of old churches, giving an example from the Cappadocia region -- one of Turkey’s most popular tourist destinations -- which is home to hundreds of ancient monasteries and churches.“If an abandoned church will house a homeless person, this is good, but if it will be destroyed by hatred, this is not good,” he said. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had prepared a report in recent years identifying the number of minorities living in Turkey -- which has a population of more than 70 million. According to the report, Turkey hosts 89,000 minorities, including 60,000 Armenians, 25,000 Jews and 3,000 to 4,000 Greeks -- most of them living in İstanbul.
